1 Samuel 28:7 Dake - Said Saul
unto his servants, "Seek me a woman that hath a familiar Spirit,
that I may go to her & enquire of her." His servants said to him, "Behold,
there is a woman that hath a familiar spirit at Endor." 1 Samuel 28:11 Dake - Said the woman, "Whom shall I bring up
He said, "Bring me up Samuel." 1 Samuel 28:13 Dake - The king (Saul) said unto her, "Be not
afraid; for what sawest thou?" The woman said unto Saul, "I saw *gods ascending out of the earth. *Dake footnote:
Hebrew, Elohim, the
word used of the supreme God of Israel.
Here it could NOT mean the
Divine Trinity was seen coming out of the earth, but merely a manifestation of
demon spirits. 1 Samuel 28:16-17 Dake
16.Then said Samuel, "Wherefore then dost thou ask of me, seeing the Lord is
departed from thee & is become thine enemy? 17.The Lord hath done to him,
as he spake by me; for the Lord hath rent the kingdom out of tine hand & given it to thy neighbor, even to David,
18.because thou obeyed-st not the voice
of the Lord, nor executed-st his fierce
wrath upon Amalek, therefore hath the Lord done this thing unto thee this day." 1 Samuel 28:20 Dake footnote
#1: God would NOT
answer Saul either by dreams & visions, Urim & Thummim, or by prophets, for He
had departed from him (Saul) & had taken the
Holy Spirit away from him because of sin... If God had refused to answer him by
legitimate means He certainly would not answer contrary to Scripture... If He
would not answer by the Holy Spirit He certainly would not answer by a demon
spirit seeking to imitate Samuel, as is plain here.
#2: It is clearly stated that Saul sought information from demons, not
God who refused to answer him. He definitely wanted a witch that had
a familiar spirit, to inquire of her (verse 7). His request was for her to
divine by the familiar spirit (verse 8).
#3: The Bible plainly teaches that communication with the dead
be demon spirits imitating departed loved ones.
#4: It is commanded in scores of scriptures NOT to traffic with demons or
seek communication with the dead... Therefore, God would not allow Samuel to
communicate thus through a witch.
#5: The seeming
appearance of Samuel to the witch was simply the familiar spirit imitating & impersonating him. (1 Chronicles 10:13-14)
When it appeared that Samuel was speaking to Saul, it was the demon speaking.
would know about both Samuel and Saul & their past relationship.
Such a demon could also make (evil) predictions. (Deuteronomy 13:1-3)
Isaiah warned later that those who sought to the dead were deceived by familiar
spirits. (Isaiah 8:19)
#6: The demon
spirit practically revealed his identity when he said that Saul & his sons would be with him tomorrow.
(We can repent &
refute/refuse demonic forecasts, in the name of the Trinity. Saul did
NOT.) Saul went to the torment compartment of sheol or hades, whereas
Samuel went to the comfort side of the underworld of departed spirits.
#7: There is NO
record of God seeking to intercept the communication of demons & men. Saul inquired of a demon & was answered by one.
When God gives answers, His messages come only through the Holy Spirit in
different ways, but NEVER through unlawful or unscriptural ways, as
here. The case of Balaam is sometimes mentioned as proof that God intercepts messages
of Satan & utters His own through the same channel, but this is NOT true.
Balaam was a true prophet, as long as (when) he was used of God.
#8: it is stated in
1 Chronicles 10:13-14 that Saul died for the previous sins & also for
sinning against the Word of the Lord (which forbade witches & traffic with demons & for asking counsel of one that has a familiar
spirit, to inquire of it) & inquired not of the Lord (on this occasion).
Thus, it was from a familiar spirit, & NOT Samuel,
obtained his information.
#9: Jesus taught that it is impossible for the dead to communicate with
living person on earth & all scriptures on the subject of the state of the
dead, & on heaven & hell, completely confirm His teaching. There was an impassible gulf between the compartments, so that they could NOT
go from 1 place to the other, nor go back to the earth. (Luke 16:26-31)
The only (scripturally recorded) case of any person leaving his place of
confinement between death & resurrection is the case of Moses whom God
(Himself) brought up
for a purpose, on the mount of transfiguration
17:1-8) We must bear in
mind though, that this was an act of God &
not a demonized witch or wizard. Hence, we conclude that 1 Samuel
28:7-19 is the record of a demon impersonation.

A similar incident took place...in 1958 in Pueblo, Colorado. We were
having special prayer for the sick. 1 night, a man from Colorado Springs
came forward. He told me that he was nervous, couldn't sleep & was on
tranquilizers. His wife later told me that they were about to
commit him to a mental institution...
Seeing Demonic Oppression
I laid hands on him & prayed that his nerves would be healed & his
body would be healed from the top of his head to the soles of his feet... How Satan Influences Lives Today
I saw an evil spirit sitting on this man's shoulder. The (evil)
spirit's arms were around the man's head in an armlock. I could
but no one else in the congregation was aware of what was going on.
I said, "You foul spirit that oppresses this man's mind, I command you
to leave his body right now in the Name of Jesus." When I said
that, the spirit turned loose of him & fell to the floor. The evil
spirit said to me, "I don't want to leave this man, but I know that if you
tell me to, I have to." "Not
only are you to leave this body, but you are to leave this building at
once,"' I commanded. He (the demon) ran out the side door.A broad smile crossed the man's face. He threw his hands into
the air & shouted, "I am free. I am free"... (Spiritual discernment) is
NOT something which we can control but which
operates as God wills. There are NO magic buttons we can
push to operate these things; it is only as the Lord leads.
Many suppose that the apostles carried these spiritual
gifts around with them & operated them at will...
Paul & Silas were in the city of Philippi for several days.While there, "It came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain
damsel possessed (oppressed) with a spirit of divination met us, which
brought her masters much gain by soothsaying: The same followed Paul & us,
& cried, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto
us the way of salvation" (Acts 16:16,17). This girl had a(n evil)
spirit of divination, which is soothsaying or fortune-telling.
She knew who Paul & Silas were by the evil spirit that was in her. In
other words, that evil spirit knew them. The girl herself didn't know
them because she had never seen them before, yet she said, "These men
are the servants of the most high God." Then we read, "This she did
many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned & said to the spirit, I command
thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. He came out the same
hour" (Acts 16:18). As the
Spirit Wills - It is evident that Paul had the gift of discerning
of spirits in operation in his ministry. Yet the Scripture says
that the girl followed them around for many days. Why didn't Paul
command the evil spirit to leave her on the 1st day? Why didn't he do it
on the 2nd day? The answer is simply that the gift didn't
operate when Paul wanted it to operate, but when the (Holy) Spirit willed.
Until he had the operation of the Spirit, Paul was just as helpless
any other person to deal with the situation.We need to understand the Scriptures concerning this in order to be
open to God & to look to Him in prayer for the manifestation of spiritual

Everything you are is so unique & complex that it is only fully expressed over
the course of your entire life. You would probably say that you are a
different person now than you were 5, 10 or 50 years ago. Your spirit is

Germany crippled by depression & war...was starving & on the verge
with a currency that was utterly worthless. In just 4 years, (Alolf)
Hitler not only balanced the budget, but also paid off a national
debt...when their debt was a higher % of their gross national product
than America’s is today. He took 1 of the most economically &
militarily weak nations on the earth at that time & made it 1 of the
most powerful nations, both economically & militarily. In only 4
years, he took a nation struggling with more than 50% unemployment to
100% employment... Hitler...also removed corruption, pornography & perversion from the streets &
instilled such a resolve & vision in the nation that even some
church leaders began to wonder
if it was the beginning of the Millennium. Such dramatic transformation
of a nation has never been witnessed before or since.
It was so remarkable that even Winston Churchill said if Hitler had died
he would have been considered the greatest leader in world
In the face of such 'miracles,' one can understand the deception of the
their adulation of this man. Yet few church leaders have been willing to
the tragic deception which also came upon most of the church in Germany.
Milton Mayer, in They Thought They Were Free observed the
following, 'Fascism came as an angel of light & German Christians, both
Protestant & Catholic, welcomed Hitler as a gift from God. Nazism was
seen as redemptive of a decadent society & came almost as a
Puritanism to a majority sick of perversions & license parading as
Hitler used the church in Germany as a springboard to power. The
dean of Magdeburg Cathedral exulted in the Nazi flags displayed in his
church, declaring this: 'Whoever reviles this symbol of ours is reviling
our Germany. The swastika flags around the altar radiate hope, hope that
the day is at last about to dawn.' Pastor Siegfried Leffler stated: 'In the pitch black night of church history Hitler
became...a window... Through him we were able to see the Savior in the
history of the Germans.' Pastor
Julius Leutheuser actually taught that 'Christ has come to us
through Adolf Hitler.'
The entire German church did not reach this level of deception, but
much of it did.
This profound delusion was challenged by the extraordinary stand for
by some German Christians such as Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
Bonhoeffer’s life is one of the 20th century’s greatest examples of
how a few who hold to the truth without compromise, standing against
the most powerful political & military machines with nothing but
spiritual power, will ultimately prevail. What was said of the
righteous Abel can now be said of Bonhoeffer: 'Though he is dead, he
still speaks.' His life continues to challenge true believers to
rise up & boldly stand against the darkness of their time.
It now seems clear that the German church’s superficial
understanding of (Jesus')redemption opened the door to this terrible
deception. The good that is in man will never redeem him from the
evil that is in him. It is still from the same tree (of
the knowledge of good & evil) & its poison will always result in
(spiritual) death. The system, which appeared so good to the German Christians, shocked
the civilized world with its evil deeds, but its
(unregenerate/fallen) nature had actually not changed. The good in
man is just the other face of the evil in man. Satan is capable
of using either good or evil as a tool to bring about his purposes.
There were only a handful of German Christians who discerned the
deception from the beginning. The same satanic mask is being
promulgated today. Our discernment must be more than
distinguishing good from evil. We must know the Lord’s voice &
Milton Mayer added a significant insight into the events in Germany
preceding the war: 'I felt and still feel that it was not just German man that I met,
but (hu) MAN. He happened to be in Germany under certain conditions. He might be
here under certain conditions. He might, under certain
conditions, be (me/myself) I.' The truth is that the same
(potential) beast is within (reach of) us all.
It is the (unregenerate human)
Adamic nature that continually beckons us to eat of the Tree
of the Knowledge of Good and Evil." (Nonetheless, even the perfect
Lucifer who became Satan sinned & the perfect Eve & Adam
sinned/ate from the forbidden tree. Thus both angels & humans can
choose to disobey. It is a great mystery being unveiled more & more.
It seems that the more our spirit & soul are united to the Trinity & heaven,
the less the deception/sin/ disobedience. It seems that we can
be inside God
without Him being inside us. God in us occurs typically in
increments: inviting Jesus, then Holy Spirit & then Father God into
our heart, leaving less & less & then no room for self or evil.)

be a physical rapture, meaning living humans rise to be with Christ in

1, where one's human spirit meets God's Holy Spirit,
& merges as would the sperm & egg at conception. This spiritual reality is the
conception or beginning of one's eternal life, heaven meeting earth & vice
versa. Such a spiritual reality can also be compared to (understood
by) the actual human birth where 1 (the fetus) actually bursts into a
different reality, when one begins to experientially walk in both the
earthly & heavenly, due to having a heavenly Father. Ana contends
that Christ (& maybe Adam & Eve) walked in 2 dimensions at the same time,
physical & spiritual.
When one truly is fully
awake to the Trinity, he will begin to walk in both dimensions.
Spiritual rapture each time one enters or perceives the heavenly
realm, whether daily, weekly, monthly, yearly, whenever. (What is the
value of such a theology?
A major value is to begin to walk in the
spiritual destiny for which one is created from the foundation of the
earth. If one waits for a ministry or for a future rapture, until
retirement, what a waste of a life.)

Summary of "Ground" Seeking radical
cause in ground" Brief Notes The true workings of
God, and the Counterfeits of Satan @
http://www.acts1711.com/TrueWorkings.html Missing Diagrams from the Original Work
"TRUTH of every kind makes free, while lies bind up in bonds. Ignorance also
binds up, because it gives ground to Satan. Man's ignorance is a primary & essential
condition for deception by evil spirits. The ignorance of the people
of God concerning the powers of darkness, has made it easy for the devil to
carry out his work as deceiver. Un-fallen man in his pure state was not
perfect in knowledge. Eve was ignorant of 'good & evil' & her ignorance
was a condition which lent itself to the deception of the serpent.
The devil's great purpose, & for which he fights, is to keep the world in
ignorance of himself, his ways & colleagues, & the Church is taking sides
with him when siding with ignorance about him. Every man should keep an
attitude of openness to all truth & shun the false knowledge which has
slain its 10's of 1,000's & kept the nations in the deception of
the devil... Goodness is...no guarantee of protection from deception...
Man is deceived if he is a hearer, and not a doer of the Word
of God (Jas. 1: 22).
He is deceived if he says he has no sin (1 John 1: 8).
He is deceived when he thinks himself to be "something" when he is
nothing (Gal. 6: 3).
He is deceived when he thinks himself to be wise with the wisdom of
this world. (1 Cor. 3: 18).
He is deceived by seeming to be religious, when an unbridled tongue
reveals his true condition (Jas. 1: 26).
He is deceived, if he thinks he will sow, & not reap what he sows
(Gal. 6: 7).
He is deceived, if he thinks the unrighteous will inherit the kingdom
of God (1 Cor. 6: 9).
He is deceived , if he thinks that contact with sin will not have its
effect (1 Cor. 15: 33) upon him... Christians are as open to possession by evil spirits
as other men, & become possessed because they have, in most cases, unwittingly
fulfilled the conditions upon which evil spirits work, &, apart
from the cause of willful sin, given ground to deceiving spirits,
through: (1) accepting their counterfeits of the Divine workings, &
cultivating passivity, & non-use of the faculties; & this through
misconception of the spiritual laws which govern Christian life.
It is this matter of ground given which is the crucial point of all.
All believers acknowledge known sin to be ground given to the enemy, and
even unknown sin in the life, but they do not realize that every thought
suggested to the mind by wicked spirits & accepted, is ground given
to them; & every faculty unused invites their attempted use of
The primary cause of deception & possession in surrendered believers may be
condensed into 1 word, passivity; that is, a cessation of the active
exercise of the will in control over spirit, soul & body, or either, as may
be the case. It is, practically, a counterfeit of 'surrender to God.'
The believer who 'surrenders' his 'members'-or faculties-to God & ceases to use them himself, thereby falls into 'passivity' which
enables evil spirits to deceive & possess any part of his being which
has become passive.
The deception over passive surrender
may be exampled thus: a believer surrenders his 'arm' to God. He permits it
to hang passive, waiting for 'God to use it.' He is asked, 'Why do you not
use your arm?' & he replies, 'I
have surrendered it to God. I must not use it now; God must use it.' But
will God lift the arm for the man? Nay, the man himself must lift it,note
1 & use it, seeking to understand intelligently God's mind in
doing so... Satan demands passivity as a condition for his compulsory action &
in order to compulsorily subject men to his will & purpose." GROUND TO EVIL SPIRITS IN THE MIND
In the list of various ways by which ground is given to evil spirits, the
1st is by means of suggestions or thoughts admitted to the mind.
Thoughts manifestly from Satan every believer rejects at once, when he
becomes conscious of them; but thousands of 'thoughts' come without any
volition of the person, for few understand control of the mind, & how to
'bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ' (2 Cor. 10:
5). 1 of the symptoms of demon possession is absolute inability, even after
volition, to change the course of thinking, or subject of thought, for the
mind appears stiff & laborious in action. The man cannot let a
specific thought go from his mind, even after he wills to.
The chief faculty open to the access of deceiving spirits is the mind,
especially before the believer apprehends the need of a 'renewed mind' (Eph.
4: 23) & realizes that his mind can be open to & used by evil spirits,
notwithstanding the Divine operation of God in the innermost shrine of his
being. Also before he realizes what he has admitted as ground for
evil spirits in his past life, for all the 'thoughts' inserted by the god of
this world blinding the mind (2 Cor. 4: 4; Ephes. 2: 2), form material for
his later working; such as 'thoughts' lodged there unconsciously, perhaps
years before; mental conceptions admitted without examination; floating
ideas which have drifted into the ground of the mind, the believer knows not
whence; a sentence in a paper, a word dropped in his hearing; the flotsam & jetsam of the mental world, leaving unthought of effect upon him,
colouring Scripture & placing the mind almost at the mercy of any
suggestion of evil spirits, under certain conditions, later on. HOW TO DETECT EVIL SPIRITS'
INTERFERENCE WITH THE MIND
To detect the working of evil spirits upon the mind, let the believer note
the way in which his 'thoughts' come. If the mind is working easily,
quietly, in normal action in the duty of the moment & sudden 'flashes,
suggestions,' or apparent 'thoughts' arise, not in sequence, or in orderly
connection with the work he has in hand, then the enemy may be
counterfeiting the operation of the person's own mind & trying to insert his
suggestions into it as if they were the outcome of the man's own thinking.
When he is in the process of thinking, the (evil) lying spirits seek to
some thought, suggestion or feeling, the 1st into the
(soul:) mind (emotions + willpower) &
the last into the spirit.
The danger at this point is for the believer to be ensnared by the
simultaneous working of his own mind,
& the presentation to the mind
of the evil spirit's 'pictures' or visions, which he thinks come from his
note 3 or very subtly refined suggestions which have no appearance
of being supernatural,
or even distinct from the person at all. Many think all that is
"supernatural" is of necessity strikingly marvelous & awesome, whereas the
enemy's working is very (subtle) ordinary-so ordinary that he is unrecognized & the operations of the supernatural appear so "natural,"
that they are not looked upon as supernatural.
The Scripture statement of "the whole world lying in the evil one" is so
true, that his speakings & workings are accepted & followed & yielded to,
as the "ordinary" things of life, & as the ordinary operations of the mental
faculties. The kingdom of darkness is near & "natural" to all the world under the rule of the
prince of darkness. SYMPTOMS OF
INTERFERENCE WITH THE MIND
It is best to be suspicious of the abnormal in every shape & form.
God does not interfere with the natural operations of the faculties. A
sudden stoppage of thought, or sequence in the action of the mind, in
thought or memory, as well as acute loss of the use of either, may
indicate the interference of evil spirits. The spirits of evil, in
possession of some faculty of the mind, can either hold it, or suddenly
release it for action-this holding or releasing power explaining much that
is unaccountable in suddenness of action, or 'change of mind' which, like
much else, is left in obscurity as 'unexplainable. I can' 1 moment,
then 'I cannot' the next, generally being put down to an 'erratic
temperament,' or other causes. The believer, however, may be unable
to act, because of the interruption, or interference of the enemy, but he
really has the ability for action,
if the faculties were free.
Others whose lives are spent in the bondage of a 'spirit of infirmity,' are
only conscious of a sense of inability, they are always 'too tired,' and
have 'no spirit, no energy' for the ordinary demands of life, yet with no
disease or reasonable physical ground for their chronic inertness &
feebleness. A sudden inability to listen, described as 'absent-mindedness'
or 'preoccupation,' when the person is compelled to follow some
'thought' suggested, or picture presented to the mind, or to follow the
words of another, are all indications of the interference of evil
spirits, the compulsions especially being a mark of their workings-when
the person is in a normal condition of health, & the brain is not
For instance, in spiritual meetings, when people seem hardly able to listen
to a vital truth, how many recognize the work of the prince of the power of
the air taking away the Word (Matt. 13: 19), by the suggestion of other
things, not appropriate to the moment & by the mind being unable to follow
the speaker's words & to grasp & apprehend? Streams of 'texts,'
note 4 also, pouring through the mind, apart from
concentration, & the volitional action of the mind, may overpower all that
the speaker is saying, & 'Carry away' the hearer into far away thoughts &
'day-dreams,' which appear so beautiful & 'divine,' yet after the
"meeting" is over, have no solid result in practical life. Any admittance of
these sudden suggestions, or passing thoughts, means ground given to the
TWO WAYS THAT THE ENEMY PUTS THOUGHTS INTO THE MIND The Deceiver has 2 ways of
putting thoughts into the mind: (1) By direct communication to the mind &
(2) indirect, by attacks on the spirit, causing undesirable feelings there,
such as impatience through the attacks, which produce impatient thoughts in
the mind, followed by impatient words. The believer has a sense of being
hindered persistently by some unseen obstacle, for the evil spirit beings
suggest a certain action to him, & then when he attempts it, he is hindered,
causing in him a sense of irritation for which he cannot account. Nothing he
does seems to "go right," & his life seems made up of
'pin-prick' troubles, too much for him to bear, causing a sense of
moroseness & discontent which grows upon him in spite of himself.
Feverish activity which accomplishes nothing is manifested occasionally, or
else perpetual occupation which gives no moment of rest; difficulty with
work in the day time; 'dreams' at night,
note 5 with no sense of rest or leisure at any time; suffering,
confusion, difficulty of action, embarrassment, perplexity, all emanating
directly, maliciously, & deliberately from evil spirits, unrecognized by
Believers whose circumstances & environment, should give them every cause
for a glad & quiet mind, are harassed with terrible anxiety & rarely free from troubled
thoughts. The mind over-estimates everything, because the imagination & mental faculties are in bondage.
appear as mountains to them. Everything is exaggerated, so that they shrink
from seeing others, as conversation is terribly difficult. They imagine they
are only 'thinking' in an ordinary sense, but it is not I 'thinking' when
a thing grips the mind, but when the mind grips the thing. Their
'thinking' goes beyond the line of pure mental action." ADMITTANCE OF POSSIBILITY OF
"is the 2nd stage in the breaking of truth upon the mind, although it may
sometimes precede the doubt.
To admit the possibility of being deceived-or mistaken-in any aspect
of new experience or action, or even view of truth, is really a possibility
which should be acknowledged by every believer. Yet so subtle is the
deception of the enemy, that almost invariably the attitude of each 1 is,
that 'others' may be open to deception, & he or she is the exception to the rule. This
certainty of personal exception is so deep seated with the most visibly
deceived person, that the long battle is simply to obtain entrance to the
mind for the 1 thought of possible deception, in any point at all. The
believer seems armed with unshaken assurance that if others be misled, he
certainly is not. He 'beholdeth the mote' in his brother's eye, & is
blind-blind to the 'beam' in his own. But an open attitude to truth says, 'Why
not I as well as others? May not my assurance of safety be a deception
of the enemy, as much as the deception I see in others? Why all believers should admit the possibility of deception by the
deceiving spirits, may be considered just here.
Since there is POSSESSION BECAUSE OF GROUND GIVEN, there must be
DIS-POSSESSION BECAUSE OF GROUND REFUSED to the enemy. The deceived 1 must
pray for light until the deception cause or causes are revealed, &
honestly desire, & be willing for the light on every point (John 3: 21).
He must be given light from God to detect symptoms & their causes & in
the recognition of these beware of introspection, i.e., a turning in
upon himself, which is the contrary of a simple refusing of ground as it is
brought into the light." THE REFUSAL OF ALL GROUND "This is why it is necessary to say that each point must be patiently
'fought through,' i.e., the refusalnote 25 of all ground to evil spirits must be maintained, because
refusing all ground & getting rid of all ground, are 2 different
things. All ground is not of necessity removed at the moment of refusal. The
refusing must therefore be reasserted, & the believer refuse persistently,
until each point of ground is detected & refused, & the faculties are
gradually released to act freely under the will of the man. The faculties let go into passivity should regain
their normal working condition, such as the operation of the mind kept to
true & pure thinking, so that any subject being dealt with is mastered &
does not dominate beyond
control. So with the memory, will, imagination & actions
of the body, such as singing, praying, speaking, reading, etc. all must be
brought back into normal working order, out of the passive, heavy state,
into which they have fallen, under the subtle workings of the enemy."

your everyday life. I won't ever tell you, you can't do something, but I'm
certainly going to tell you what happens if you do it. God is setting up the
enemy for defeat & failure in your life. In order for you to become those manifested sons & daughters of God, you've got to
know what you shouldn't have in your life, or what will happen if you allow
it in. Whether it's Heaven or Hell. I see both
sides. I know how both sides operate, so I have a lot to share with you?. What do you want? I have 14 years worth to share?. We're supposed to show this world; we are the most exciting, amazing,

That is a different (later) time. We're not in that time. This 1st time has to happen 1st, or their wouldn't be a harvest. The world would never know there was a God. He's going to do that. The Word says so & it has to happen 1st. We're enteringinto that time (effective Easter 4/2012). It's accelerated (doubled/effective 6/1/2016). Instead of taking people & training them for 30 years in something, He'll do it in 3 months. He really means that. Before when you planted seeds & maybe waited for the harvest. Sometimes you'll get your harvest before the seed gets planted, because you already decided to do it in your heart. The blessings are going to be rapidly coming. They will happen rapidly. Blessings & rewards will come almost immediately in these times that are on the earth. But the consequences will also be rapidly coming. In other words, what you played around in for a while, it may not have showed up for years. Guess what? That's not going to happen. They'll be almost immediate consequences because He's training us right now. He's training you. You have a short window of time for the body to find out, (that) God actually has plans for you & for you to get your life ready. That's what we're in right now, in that little window for you to find out. You need to be whole: body, soul, & spirit. There can't be anything of the enemy in you (in your soul layers), because, yes, great darkness is going to come on the earth. But the darkness will never be greater than the light. That's you. He's talking about you. That means if you're walking in the way that He wants you or needs you to walk & there's nothing in you, (that is in common with the spiritual enemy) you will always have power, even over the great darkness that is coming. That's His plan. That we will walk in more authority & dominion than any other body of believers before on this planet. In order to do that, there can't be darkness in you, because there are these little doors that open. Little doors open in your soul. Little doors open. The (spiritual) enemy can come in, do things & mess around with you. He can steal, rob from you. He can bring confusion & strife into your life. So you want to keep that stuff out of you." (CAUTION RE Naysayers.) (Thus daily/weekly/as a lifestyle, we disallow to lodge or repent of & LOOSE from soul any thing in common with the spiritual enamy + bind to our soul the opposite virtue of the Trinity.)
"I will be sharing how the Father is sharpening our discernment in these days. Now I am not talking about a good discernment, it is a supernatural, out of the ordinary divine discernment that operates at extreme levels. It will allow those whom God has chosen & they have said YES, to carry out the commission God has appointed them to without being caught into deception or lied to for the purpose of others using them for their own agenda. This discernment will be given not just for protection but also for the execution of God's government in the earth. Before God even birthed this earth from Himself, He had framed & spoken out the times & seasons that would take place & those who would have a commission to be world changers during those times & seasons that would come on the earth.
This is not just new revelation but it has already been activated within this time. These are new times with new ways & it will open your understanding of what God means by MANIFEST & it is tied to your Soul."

Spiritual Warfare -
http://www.billyebrim.org/content/july_2009 7/16/2009 -
"While passing through a terrible spiritualconflict some years ago, God…gave me a vision. I saw a man open my front door and walk in. He looked like he had come through a terrific storm. His collar had been pulled up to protect his neck & his felt
hat was pulled down
securely on his head. He carried a brief case in his hand.
He had all the appearance of a lawyer. He walked quickly to me and dropping down on 1 knee beside my chair, he removed his hat & then looking straight into my eyes, said, 'I have come to give thee counsel.' My heart
quickened with expectation. Continuing he said earnestly, 'BIND
the POWER of SATAN
TO DECEIVE YOU.' With that he was gone.
That is our need today. 'Bind the power of the enemy to deceive you.' Satan realizes his time is short. He is seeking to sabotage the work of God & the
saints. The dictionary defines sabotage as 'malicious injury to work, tools,
etc., or any underhand interference with production or business, as by enemy agents during war time.' Certainly this describes his efforts today. He uses deception, false accusations, spirits of condemnation, clever imitations of the work & voice of the Spirit, & so on, to halt & undermine the work &
growth of the Spirit in you. REFUSE TO BE DECEIVED. TRY THE
SPIRITS WHETHER THEY
ARE OF GOD. 'Be sober, be vigilant: because your adversary the devil,
roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour: whom resist steadfast
in the faith.'

Mystery of Iniquity - "It has ever been the design of Satan to draw the minds of the
people from Jesus to man, & to destroy individual accountability.
Satan failed in his design when he tempted the Son of God. He succeeded
better as he came to fallen man. The doctrine of Christianity was corrupted.
Popes, (Rabbis, gurus, pastors) & priests presumed to take an exalted
position & taught the people to look to them to pardon their sins, instead
of looking to Christ for themselves. The Bible (when written in their own
language, entirely or in part) was kept from them (often) in order to
conceal the truths which would condemn them. p. 108, Para. 1, [1SG].

They were taught that the popes & priests
(clergy) were Christ's representatives, when in fact they were (often,
sometimes unintentionally) the representatives of Satan. When they bowed
(acquiesced) to them, they worshiped Satan. The people called

the word of God to read for themselves, lest they become enlightened (or
so-called misunderstanding), & their (clerical) sins (abuse of power) be
exposed. The people were taught to look to these (sometimes misguided)
deceivers, & receive every word from them, as from the mouth of God.
They held that power over the mind, which God alone should hold. If any
dared to follow their own convictions (& contradict the spiritual
dictatorship), the same hate which Satan & the (spiritually blind) Jews
exercised towards Jesus would be kindled against them & those in
authority would thirst for their blood... CHAPTER XIX -

God's children shall be turned...(unless one repent & consistently turn away
from his error,) the soul that sinneth it shall die an everlasting death

resurrection & then the

- PRAYERS for DISCERNMENT & WITNESS of
the HOLY SPIRIT -"Christians do not always discern well, on a
consistent basis, whether their experiences are from God or not. Paul
says, in the New Testament, that we see through a glass, dimly. He was
saying that things are not always clear to us. That is because the 'flesh'
(mind/intellect/emotions) & distractions of every day life
sometimes interfere with our ability to pay attention to what the Holy
Spirit is trying to say to us when He speaks to us or witnesses to us.
Test your experience & leadings to see if they are of God, if you do
not have a clear witness or discernment. Here are a variety of
Spirit-filled prayers that can be used: 'I bind Satan and all of his principalities, powers, rulers of the
darkness & wicked spirits in high places & break all oppositions,
hindrances, interferences & obstructions to clear discernment &
possession of my victory, Lord Jesus Christ, all by trusting & expectant faith, in Your Name & for Your Glory.
I take possession
what is already mine in-the-Spirit, by faith in Your Name, Lord Jesus
I resist all the powers of darkness & their assignments against this
house (church, etc.) this day & I bind them, break their power, &
curse their works at the roots,
all in Christ Jesus’ Name. Amen. Lord Jesus Christ, if this, which I am experiencing is of You, I receive
it. If it is not of You, I reject it & curse it at its roots.
If it is of You, Lord, open all the doors to
it for Your purpose &
Glory. If it is not
of You, close all the doors to it. I ask these things in Your Name & for Your Glory, Lord Jesus Christ,
Amen.' If you are uncertain about a spiritual circumstance, wait for the Lord
to lead you. DO NOT ACT on it. Remember the acronym 'HALT'. It
stands for HUNGRY, ANGRY, LONELY, TIRED. If you are experiencing any or
all of these things in a spiritual circumstance, do not act on it. Pray
for revelation. Discern who you are in Christ & remind yourself of it frequently.
will try to get you off track & get your eyes on your:
past...circumstances...weaknesses...failures. Ask the Holy Spirit to
make you ever alert to Satan’s wiles, & then, HOLD YOUR POSITION IN
CHRIST. Confess aloud: 'I have died with Christ & have been buried with Him.
My "old self’ is
dead & buried in the waters of immersion baptism, never to be exhumed,
examined, or looked at, again..in Jesus’ Name, Amen.' If, out of human frailty & weakness, you fall
into sin, (immediately repent & then) RE-TAKE YOUR POSITION in the
supernatural & CONFESS AGAIN & AGAIN that you have been crucified &
buried with Christ. Remember that confession brings possession, & the Holy
Spirit WILL make it a reality in your life & transform your attitudes & desires toward sin. Hold on to
the revelation of your death & burial in Christ & with Christ. Cling...Cling...Cling to it. Confess it.
Holy Spirit honors your faith & will bring you into clear thinking, clear
vision, total freedom & full deliverance from your sin."

Because I know most times people think prophets or
prophecy & they always think thus saith the Lord, you're speaking through
visions or dreams. But when he activated my brother & I
in the prophetic, it was just in the seer realm. Most times we think
seer realm is just visual. But he activated something which exploded in us both.
1 of the areas that God had activated
through Bob Jones was the ability to smell in the spirit
(invisible/ realm). 1 time I was in a meeting...praying for people. I
called them to the altar & was praying for people. All of a sudden, my sense of smell was
activated...opened up to another level that I've never experienced
before. It was like Jesus was now walking me how to walk a person
through deliverance. I come across this lady. I smelled this very foul,
pungent smell...almost like rotten eggs or sewage...
It was having this
conversation between my actual senses & saying, somebody might have died in here.
Holy Spirit was revealing to me that there was something in her that was
dying...from a terminal illness. As I was praying to
the Lord, He revealed that it was a bloodline generational cancer.
As I was praying for her, I couldn't break it. I couldn't break through. I tried to prophesy.
It didn't break through. Holy Spirit said,
"There is something generational in her family that was a door that
opened up for cancer to be in that entire generation." She
received was an inheritance of generational cancer that needed to be
broken. I had to then ask her, "Listen, I need you to begin to
stand in the gap for whoever opened up the door in your family for this
cancer that wreaked havoc." The Lord began to reveal, it was
her grandmother who went through some abuse. There was some strife
there from that abusive relation-ship. Once she repented & stood in
the gap for her grandmother & prayed for the: abuse,
unforgiveness, strife. All of a sudden that sense of smell of the rotten eggs or that sewer smell
broke literally, That's when I began to smell the (fragrant) presence of the Lord.
Why What Your
Body Is Feeling Could Be a Word
of Knowledge"We can experience discernment from the spiritual realm through physical
body manifestations... If our natural body can react to an emotional
situation, why can't our natural body react to a spiritual situation?
Our body does react because we are a 3-part being with the emotional,
physical & spiritual all
connected... When you are ministering to someone, you can experience
pain or tingling in your body where they are experiencing pain in their
body. This is a physical manifestation from the Lord. You need to ask
them, "Do you have pain right now in this part of your body?"
answer, 'Yes,' discern if it is a word of knowledge for a spirit of
infirmity & pray
over it. Ask them if the pain has left and pay attention to see if the
pain has left your body. Keep praying until the pain has left both your
bodies. As you become open to the manifestations of the Spirit,
pay attention to what you feel while you are ministering or talking to
someone. The very thing you are feeling could very well be discernment
from the Lord on how to pray for them... One act of obedience or
disobedience can affect another person's life & your own. You don't want to be responsible for someone missing out on their
you were hesitant to try. Repent of what you didn't do,

strongholds are a combination of 2 or more
strongholds, joined together and working together towards the destruction of
their host. In most cases 'deception' is a major part in the different
super strongholds. In accordance with Chester & Betsie Kylstra, this thesis
professes that the: “5 Tower Strongholds
Demonic Groupings” of deception include the
following:91* (1) Control, (2) Abandonment, (3) Fears, (4) Self
(5) the Occult. 1.Deception pertaining to
Control includes the following
characteristics: the use of
a strategy not to be
abandoned by others, eg. performance,
manipulation, seduction, lies...; the passivity of the will(the
Ahab spirit); a depraved attitude of rebellion...the
acceptance and the pleasing of man. 2.A spirit of
Abandonment consists of deception characteristics
such as: Fear of abandonment; the Lie of 'not protected'
by...God/spouse/parents/whoever (you blame/accuse, who) makes you (feel)
vulnerable; the feeling of betrayal; the need of
feelings of (being) rejected and loneliness. 3.A(n evil) spirit (&/or perception of)
Fear includes the
deception of the fear of death; the fear of
being left; the fear
of (having) been held (let) down & a
panic attack or fright
(such as stage fright). 4.Self-deception includes (agreeing with) the
worthlessness, stupidity, ugliness, or hatred for the self. Self-deception
also includes pride & arrogance, criticalness, self-righteousness, comparison,
lack of self-discipline, guilt, religiousness, hopelessness, & even depression &
despair. 5.Occult deception includes deception about the presence of the
demonic; dreams about sly, leering things; mental torment such as
blocking of the mind, mind clamps, veiling of the mind, confusion &
different kinds of fear. 2 very strong vicious and powerful deceptions are the super-strongholds: a.The Control-Fear-rejection Stronghold. b.The Shame-Fear-Control

Anthony was constantly attacked by demonic powers but learnt how to discern &
take authority over them... The evil spirits would come & tell Anthony
"prophetic" & informative things, but he said, "I have no need to learn things
from you." He said, "On occasions they (the demons) would come & fill my house
with snakes & all manner of reptiles, but I would tell them, "Begone," & they
would right away leave. Then they brought torches & threatened to set alight my
cell with me in it, but I lifted up my voice in the Psalms & said, ‘Some trust
in chariots & some in horses, but I will be strong in the name of the Lord our
God,’ & immediately the devils disappeared from before me. After a month another
band of demons came again in the form of singers & began to sing & speak to me
with words from the Scriptures, but as a deaf man I did not hearken to them."
"Another time they came back & shook my habitation where I
was living, but I laughed at them, for my confidence was in the Lord. My
mind was in no way disturbed by them." "Then they came to me with such clamor, dancing,
singing & clapping, but then when they saw that I did not cease to pray or sing
Psalms, (as other men who have been defeated by them), their songs turned into
lamentations & they began to wail. Then I gave thanks to my good Lord because
He has broken & brought low their arrogance & folly." False Light - "On
another occasion the devil appeared to me in the form of a monk & gave me false
counsel telling me to rest from praying, because I was ‘after all only a man of
flesh’. I gave him no answer but bowed myself to the Lord & asked Him to make an
end of this devil & the demon vanished like
smoke from my door." Satan appeared -
The devil came many many times to Anthony. Satan came to his door 1 night & told
Anthony that the "Christians were filling the desert & that his own people did not follow him for any other reason that he held
them captive." Anthony & others like him,
lived in the Spirit
& many people came to them for counsel of their wisdom, for they were able to see the matters in hand by the Spirit, discern, pray & minister in the realm of the unseen world. Governors, other great men & women came into the
desert seeking out the prayers, ministry & counsel of the Desert Fathers who had
given themselves to prayer & spiritual warfare. The True Vine from Egypt -
Palladius, Chronius, James, the monks of
Nitria, Abba Ammon, Marcarius, the Egyptian, Pachomius. Elpidus & many
others went into the caves of Egypt to pray & enter into a real spiritual warfare
which seemed to be beyond anything most people are presently in today. The early
Celtic Saints as well as those in Europe patterned their lives after the Desert
Fathers. The famous monastery at Bangor, in Ireland considered that their
revelation of continuous praise & prayer came from the, "True vine, which came
out of Egypt." (See Bangor-Light of the World

Before I could even think of answering Him, He said, "It's
sickness & disease. What is it doing?"
Before I could answer him, He's

That includes sickness and disease." Dvorak, Becky -
https://ofm6z46z825qpxk83fa00q1a-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/IS895Transcript_Dvorak.pdf BECKY: There was a boy. His name was
Separoni. This was in the Maasai land in northern Tanzania. 1 of the evangelists came up & asked us would we
go to his village, because there was this boy who could not walk. Something was
very wrong with him & would we take the time. We were all really, really tired,
but I've learned if you will listen to God's invitation, you're in for a real
blessing. I looked at him & said, "Of course we'll go." So they drove us up in
the bush... The sun was setting, & you can feel an evil presence when you got out
of that vehicle. Then out of the corner of my eye I saw this 11 year old boy.
He crawled on all 4’s...did everything like an animal. As soon as I
reached out & touched the boy, he just started rolling & thrashing.
I said, "Holy Spirit, what happened to
his boy? Show me." I'm a seer. I closed my eyes.
Lord started taking me down this pathway. We went through a field. I started
with an interpreter asking him, did this happen, did this happen. He would
stop rolling around, & say, "Dee," which meant yes.
In this vision I came up to a wooden hut. Now (most) are not wooden. They're
out of cow dung. So a wooden hut was somebody more prosperous, like a witch
I saw my hand push the door open. I felt the Holy Spirit whisper in my ear, "Secret
things." So I pushed the door open & saw
this boy all wrapped up in black, all tied up. I knew that he had suffered great
abuse under the witch doctor & these warriors following 7 mocking me. I asked the boy through the interpreter, did
this happen. He kept saying yes, yes, but he kept rolling around. So we go lay hands on this
boy. There was something wrong with him; it was trying to kill him, manifesting
in that manner. So I renounced the spirit of
released the power of the
Holy Spirit into this boy.
I said, "In Jesus' name, you will walk in Jesus' name." It doesn't
matter how desperate the situation is, God is able & willing. He looked at
us through the interpreter & said, "I am so tired. I need to
sleep." All the pastors are going, oh. I said, "Don't worry about it.
God will complete what He started here."
said, "Put him on the chair." So he went on the chair. We had to
go & minister
for 3 hours someplace else. When we came back, everything was gated, because of
the lions & everything out there. So we pulled up in the safari vehicle. We're on a hill so we could see over the fence.
I was sitting in the front. I
said, "Who is that? Who is that?" Everybody is trying to figure out who it is.
All of a sudden I was like, "Oh my, that's him." I jumped out of the car like
in the movies; we went running to each other, jumping up & down. That boy
said this: When we laid hands on him he became so tired he had to go to sleep.
He went into a deep sleep; he woke up a few hours later & just got out of the
chair & walked normally.
JAMES: But we hear more than 1 voice. I hear my voice, I hear the voice of the world.
At times, I get bombarded & hear the voice of the enemy, but we also hear the
Holy Spirit. We need to hear & learn to discern the voice of the Holy Spirit from the voice of the
Hebrews, Chapter 5, Verse 14 talks about solid food. So how many of
you want to actually have a solid food, not just a baby diet? Okay.
Solid food is for the mature who practice their senses to
discern good & evil. So as you said, 5 senses: sight, hear,
smell, taste, touch. As we surrender our 5 natural senses unto
the Holy Spirit & as we declare freedom, we surrender our members, our
eyes, our ears, our heart, unto the Lord. It's a speech-activated
kingdom. (Regarding discernment) To become naturally
supernatural. we declare freedom over our 5 senses, pray & then receive the anointing of the Holy Spirit upon
our natural senses.
Just put your hands over your
heart right now because here's where your 2nd set of eyes are.
I pray right now that the Holy Spirit will open the eyes of
our heart & will release shafts of revelatory light & revelation into your heart so that you might know that you know,
that you know, that greater is he who is in you than he who
was in the world.
You're going to be flooded with revelation
on the hope of his calling, the glories, inheritance of the
surpassing greatness of his power towards us who believes.
point 1. Then you're going to also declare & I'm going to declare because it's
a speech-activated thinking. JAMES: So do this after me. I declare that the
eyes of my heart are open. I am receiving greater revelation than ever before. I
will see angels, perceive You Holy Spirit, have knowings.
I will move in all of Your
gifts, Holy Spirit. I declare, "Greater is He Who is in me than he who is in
There is a 3rd step. 1st, surrender/present your 5
senses. 2nd, we, it's speech-activation.
speak/declare freedom. In declaring freedom you
might need to break some old bondages, so we break,
in the name of Jesus: old traumas, word curses we or
others have said over us.
We use speech-activation. Then we must receive
the anointing. 3 simple steps: surrender,
declare & receive. Now: receive the
Holy Spirit upon the eyes of your heart. Right
now, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, some
of you are going to get released in dreams, into
Divine knowings, discerning what is the demonic
hindrance against your family generational tree.
I speak right now, "You have a sharpening this
clarity." I decree in the name of Jesus, right
now, you are free from generational curses."
JAMES: I believe there is. So in my book
Discerner I have a chapter that's on all
these 5 senses. In Chapter 6, I talk
about the 6th sense. I believe it's Divine
knowing. I believe that we are invited into
the mind of Christ & we can
know in this way, by the Holy Spirit
anointing, whatever it is that we need. The
Book of James says, "If we lack wisdom, let
me ask of God", in Jesus' name. I
declare: I see You have a vast supply & I'm asking for
You to release Divine insight. I receive the
mind of Christ. I declare I have the mind of
Christ. I will now move in Divine
knowings. I will know that I know, that
I know, that God is for & not against me,
that it is a season of favor & suddenlies.
I declare, "You will move
in a new realm of Divine knowings
by the mind of Christ."
Theultimate purpose of
revelation is not just receive a word,
not just release a word, (but) to become
a word...The ultimate purpose is
transformation...from old habits to
being set free as an authentic new
creation in Christ Jesus. Where there is
desolation there will be restoration.
Why Believers Need to Grow in Discerning of Spirits
"During His earthly ministry, Jesus discerned many evil spirits
manifested in various forms. Once, He cast out a spirit of infirmity that was
causing a woman to have serious curvature of the spine. This deliverance from an
evil spirit resulted in the woman's immediate healing, yet Jesus didn't make the
incident into a spectacle. In this case, He did not address the unclean spirit verbally at all (Luke
13:11-13). Jesus laid His hands on the woman & the evil spirit departed, as demonstrated
by her immediate ability to stand up straight. I call this 'leaning in', making
spirit leave simply by bringing the Spirit of God too close for the evil
spirit's comfort. Often, when I discern an unclean spirit, by leaning in, I'm
counting on the reality that 'greater is
He who is in you than he who is in the
world' (1 John 4:4). By releasing the
opposite Spirit, the Holy Spirit, there
is a displacement that happens resulting
in people being set free & atmospheres cleansed."

Johnson, Jeremia @
the night of May 30th, while praying & pacing over the USA in my
home around 2 am, a demonic entity appeared right before me in an
open vision. This type of encounter has only ever happened 1
other time while I was ministering in a foreign country in 2015.
I have always engaged in this type of spiritual warfare while asleep &
dreaming prophetically, but rarely if ever to this degree while awake.This demonic entity had a visible & deep
scar underneath its right eye, but it also had the ability to mutate or
rather change forms. I watched this 'being”'morph several times right in
front of me. Yet the gash below its right eye remained. It pointed its finger right in my face & said, 'I exist to
deceive the whole world. Just as there are forerunners in
the kingdom of God that go before the Son of Man, so I am
a forerunning spirit in the kingdom of darkness that has been
sent before the coming of the man of lawlessness.' It continued,
'The scar underneath my right eye has come at the hands of the praying
Church, for many of them in this hour have begun to detect our true plans
& purposes to (1) disrupt systems, (2)
attention, & (3) release chaos in the land.' I
had never been told anything like this at length by a demonic entity.
Suddenly...the authority & mind of Christ came upon me. I pointed my
finger back at this demon & demanded, 'Who is the source behind your power
& influence?' It began to laugh
hysterically. That sound still taunts me. With great rage this demon roared, 'The Media' (mouth). I fixed my gaze
upon it and said, “You devil that has come to deceive the whole world
through the media & is being exposed right now. I command you in the name
of Jesus Christ to reveal your agenda.' With a sneer it began to
manifest a foul spirit. The 1st wave I smelled was FEAR.
I saw the Coronavirus spreading across the whole world & the spirit of
fear attached to it. The 2nd wave of stench the demon manifested was
HATE. I saw the cities on fire & racism escalating.
The 3rd wave that came was GREED. It was the
strongest of all the smells. In that moment of time, by way of Holy
Spirit revelation, I understood that what we are witnessing in 2020,
beyond a virus, racism & police brutality is a diabolical & sinister
agenda called 'greed'. A wave of fear has hit through the virus.
Now a wave of anger through the riots, but the real culprit is greed.
In other words, the world is being held hostage right now by demonic
forces preparing the way for the man of
lawlessness." Johnson, Jeremia - 7/16/2020 -
Dream: COVID-19 Trojan horse @ https://jeremiahjohnson.tv/category/blog/

distraction when we should be speaking out concerning matters such as
abortion, sex trafficking, pedophilia & systematic racism."
Johnson, Jeremia - 4/20/2020 - Red Dragon in New York City - "In
my dream last night, I found myself walking the empty streets of New York
City. A newspaper on the ground I picked up. On the front page of
the paper the headline read, 'Corruption Exposed'. Suddenly I heard the
loud noise of an animal that I had never heard before. I immediately knew
with how loud the sound was that the creature was gigantic. I then
turned the street corner & locked eyes with an enormous red dragon roaming
the streets of NYC. As I started following it, I perceived by the Holy
Spirit of God that it did not have the ability to breathe out 'fire'.
Rather it had been trained as a 'liar'. I inquired of the Lord regarding
this particular principality’s tactics & strategy. He spoke to me, 'It
is not only fear that seeks to be cast into the atmosphere of New York
City but rather intimidation & bullying spirits are at
work. The lying spirits in the city seek to cripple & decapitate My
people. The strategy of the enemy is to send the saints into a hole that
they might never crawl out of.' Intimidation to frighten or
threaten someone, usually in order to persuade them to do something that
you want them to do, Bullying, the behavior of a person who hurts or
frightens someone smaller or less powerful, often forcing that person to
do something they do not want to do. The dream suddenly shifted & I
was taken into an underground prayer call center underneath New York City.
It was well coordinated, organized, & stretched the span of the city. I
specifically noticed that many Hispanic & Latino looking people had been
anointed to pray all night over the phone. Clocks were spread out on the
walls of this underground prayer network. There was hope, expectation, &
great faith in this atmosphere. A messenger of light appeared to me &
handed me a scroll with Psalm 113:3 & Malachi 1:11 written upon it.
understood that a high spirit of praise & pure incense/prayer would defeat
this principality roaming the streets of New York City spreading lies,
intimidation, & bullying. God said to me, “The shut down has initiated the
‘shut in’.” Psalm 113:3 says, “From the rising of the sun to its
setting the name of the LORD is to be praised.” Malachi 1:11 says,
“My name will be great among the nations, from where the sun rises to
where it sets. In every place incense & pure offerings will be brought to
me, because my name will be great among the nations,” says the Lord
Almighty. Upon waking up from this prophetic dream, I wrote 5 prayer
points in my journal that those living in New York City & the global Church might know how to pray:
We must pray for any corruption taking place in New York City to be exposed
on a governmental level. What is being done in darkness must be brought
into the light. Keep your eyes on the news.
We must pray into this “red dragon” roaming the streets of New York City &
specifically target the spirits of intimidation & bullying that are
penetrating the atmosphere there. There is something greater than fear at
work here. All lying spirits must be confronted. Only the truth will set the
We must pray that the underground prayer network in New York City will be
strengthened & filled with hope & courage in this hour. Prayer, praise & pure incense must arise from the Church. Time is of the essence.
We must pray that the Hispanic & Latino remnant in New York City step into
the divine anointing & grace that is available to pray through the night
hours right now. We must pray Psalm 113:3 & Malachi 1:11 over
New York City. Power is released in the atmosphere when we preach, pray,
& sing God’s Word back to Him!

2021 - "Thoughts
are not innocent. They’re seeds.
They’re pictures (esp. in the minds of males who often think in pictures).
What you listen to, what you look at, the things you do, & friends you hang
around all produce thoughts, pictures, in your mind whether you realize it or
not. When you begin to concentrate on those pictures, they (have potential to)
produce (wrong or excessive) desire & desire can get you into trouble (wheather
for a beer, chocolate, new dress/shoes/toy or other addiction)... Your
brain does not have the authority to think anything it wants. You can choose
what you think about. So, test every thought you have against God’s will for
you. How do you know His will? Read your Bible. Measure everything against
what God says. Umpire your thoughts. If they don’t line up with what God says
get them out. Replace them with a right thought. How do you know what right
thought to think? Read your Bible. This is why I say that memory verses
aren’t just for kids; they’re for everyone. If you memorize some
scriptures you’ll have them ready & waiting to replace those negative thoughts."
there are 9 Black Fraternities & Sororities that make up this order
& are called the Divine 9. The people who started the
fraternities and sororities were probably unaware or unwilling to see the
‘Stolen Legacy’ of this Greek system used to usurp Egyptian & Babylonian
religion & culture. The Greeks adopted this system of idol gods worship, & modified it to
uphold the agreement between all
nations, which was to keep the
children of Jerusalem &
Judah, aka so called black people, delusional & unconscious. They fear the children of Israel waking up from being Dry Bones

3 General Types of
Propaganda -http://www.physics.smu.edu/pseudo/Propaganda/good overview
"White" propaganda comes from an official source & is not
disguised. It should be immediately recognizable as propaganda. Radio broadcasts from sources such as Radio Moscow, Voice of
America, etc. are examples.
"Grey" propaganda may be apparent as propaganda but its
source will be hidden.
is material whose content is not easily discerned as propaganda &
whose source is completely concealed. Ellic Howe's book "The
Black Game" tells stories of British efforts in black propaganda in
WWII. Black propaganda includes all kinds of hoaxes & deceptions...
To the above we add Hitler's
principles (from Jowett & O'Donnell).
Avoid abstract ideas - appeal to the emotions.
Constantly repeat just a few ideas. Use stereotyped
phrases. Give only 1 side of the argument. Continuously
criticize your opponents. Pick out 1 special "enemy" for
special vilification... These will be found in Volume I
of Mein Kampf. Read them carefully, then see how they
apply to the messages you hear today. Take any political
message, dissect it, then see how it applies Hitler's
principles... Propaganda is effective because it works at
an emotional level below the level of rational
reasoning. The propagandist uses symbols, attitudes &
morals that are embedded in the target audience. This is
desirable because the emotional response can be deep,
powerful, long-lasting & not rational. An intellectual,
rational response is not desired & is
From all the
principles we have seen, we can distill an
outline of the propaganda properties.
It will appeal to the emotions
avoid abstractions. It must be as simple as possible so everyone
can understand it. The message may be reduced to a slogan.
It will be constantly repeated.
It will use stereotyped phrasing.
It will give only one side of the story (you
may have to dig to find out the other side).
It will point out a "villain" to attack.
It will incessantly criticize and attack its
opponents. It will use distinctive phrases or slogans
to label people or events. Whether something in the
is true or false is not important, as long
as it is believed & works. The propaganda will
responses from the people's own
backgrounds. Cultural symbols will be used to obtain the
emotional responses. Such symbols may be
verbal or visual. Posters make great use of
symbols. If you examine some message and find these
properties in it, you can be certain that it
is propaganda. Another thing you can do is
look for the seven devices identified by the
in the 1930s...
"Satan is the father of all lies.
God is author of truth. Lies damage, defeat & destroy. Truth illuminates, reveals, heals &
sets captives free. -
Lies establish a foundation equal to sinking sand, while truth provides the only unshakable foundation.
Present day trends reveal that too many Americans have
believed lies. Deception prevails" (& distorts reality,
especially spiritual reality.)

https://lifetoday.org/assets/files/4-12-21e-Stanley.pdf Edited Excerpt -
5 Self Questions - Andy - The
question is, I know what I want to do & what everybody expects me to do, but am
I really being honest with myself? Why am I purchasing/leasing this, really? Why
am I going over there, really? Why did I call her back, really? Why am I moving
out/in, really? Be honest with yourself, because the most difficult person to
lead is always the person in the mirror. Andy – 2nd
(Your immediate choice) I know (that) it is a big deal right now & seems like it
is your whole world, but 1 day, believe it or not, this season is just going to
be a story you tell. What (life) story do you want to tell? When we pause & ask
that question, it gives us the opportunity to be the hero rather than the
villain in our story. So what autobiography do you want to tell,is the 2nd legacy question. Sheila: 1 of the 5 questions honestly that really resonated most with me
is the conscience question. I can think of a couple of times in my life where I
have simply ignored red flags. Part of it was out of a desire not to ruffle
anybody's feathers, (in order) to please people. I think this is a huge, huge
The conscience question is this: Is there a tension
that deserves my attention? Is there an internal tension, a red flag, as my
dad used to call it, "a check in his spirit." When I was a kid I would say, Dad,
I want to do this or that. He would say, "Well, I kind of have a check in my
spirit." I'm like, "Well, what even is that? Give me some reasons. Let's have a
good argument." He would be like, "No, I just have a check in my spirit."
Oftentimes, that internal hesitation is the Holy Spirit nudging us in a
direction without any information, so consequently it is just easy just to brush
or rush by that. So in the book Better Decisions, Fewer RegretsI say, If
there is a tension, pay attention to that tension, whether it makes any sense or
not, because oftentimes, if we pause & allow it to kind of settle in, more/new
information surfaces. Somebody comes along & gives us information we didn't
have. But do not rush by that tension. Pay attention to that tension. So the 3rd question is: Is
there a tension that deserves my attention? Andy: 4th
question: Is that the wise thing to do? Wisdom is critical.
This was a question my dad raised me on.
Because again, our tendency is to think in binaries of its either right or
wrong, good or bad, moral or immoral, ethical or unethical. But as Christians we
have been called to live by a different standard called wisdom.
Apostle Paul said for us to redeem the time. This maturity question goes like
this: In light of my past experience, in light of my current circumstances +
future hopes & dreams, what is the wise thing for me to do? Maybe not the wise
thing for everybody else to do, but in light of my (own/family) past experience,
current circumstances & future hopes & dreams, & currently dismissing being
right/wrong, ethical/unethical, moral/immoral, what is the wise thing for me
to do? If we think back to our greatest regret (whether it was a single decision
or a season in our life) our greatest regrets (whether we did something
bad/wrong/immoral/ unethical) were preceded by a series of unwise
decisions, which bring us to the threshold of regret. So we're either going to
live on the edge of disaster or regret, or we're going to walk wisely. By
walking wisely, we stay away from the edge. The question is what is the wise
thing, maybe not for everybody else to do, but in light of my future
hopes/dreams/marriage/relation-ships/finances, what is the wise thing for
me to do now? It takes a lot of
maturity to (honestly) ask (& honestly answer & honestly respond to) this
question, because we already know the answer to the question before we
ask. Asking yourself: What is the wise thing for me to do, can be
clarifying/terrifying, so sometimes we avoid asking it. Andy:
Regarding Divorce - 1 day, believe it or
not, a divorce & everything connected with it, is going to be in the rearview
mirror of your life. You need to wake up every day & decide, (in the future)
when this is nothing more than a story I tell, I want to be able to tell my
children the entire story & not skip or lie about any parts. So when you're
tempted to try to get back at your former mate, to manipulate her, the money,
the kids, or when you're tempted to just tell half-truths, remember you are
writing a story & want to be able to tell your entire story… Avoid the temptation to do what everybody
tells you to do or to do what everybody in my situation would be tempted to do.Remember 1 day this is just going to be a story I tell or write or write,
because every decision we make is simply a line in the story of our lives.
I want people to write a good story.
You write good stories by making good
What does love require of
me? This is the relationship question. Of these 5 questions 4 have a return
on your investment. If/when you (honestly) ask these 1st 4 questions, your life
will be better. If you ask the 5th question, it's going to cost you something,
but the 5th question changes the world. The 5th question is: What does love
require of me? In the book, when I talk about love I'm talking about a very
specific love. When Jesus gathered with his apostles for their final Passover He
said, "I'm giving you a new command." They didn't need any more commands. He
said, "No, I'm not adding, I'm replacing. My 1 new New Covenant command is going
to replace all the other commands. I want you to love one another, but I'm not
finished, I want you to love one another the way that I have loved you."
The next day He put on a demonstration of
love that took His breath away & took their sin away. After the resurrection He
sent His followers/essentially us into the world to love people, not the way
we've been loved, but to love as He has loved us. The relationship question
is: What does love require of me? I know what I'm tempted to do.
I know how
she responded. I know how I responded last time. I know what people expect me to
do. I know what they deserve for me to do. But what does love require of me?
There may not be any positive return on this question, but this is at the
epicenter of the Christian experience. We are to love as we've been loved (by
the Trinity). We are to forgive as we've been forgiven (by the Trinity). We're
to accept as we've been accepted (by the Trinity). We're to honor as we've been
honored by our Heavenly Father. So the 5th question is the most
difficult/demanding question of all, what does love require of me?

https://sidroth.org/television/tv-archives/lance-wallnau/ LANCE: I
heard God say: "Isaiah 45 will be the 45th
president. I believe that this to happen in America. I think the church has a
choice." Most people don't know this, but the victory that Trump had
in the Electoral College was based on .008% of the total votes. That
means .008% of the total votes showed up in 5 swing states that gave Trump
the Electoral College.
LANCE: These manifestations (street/media protests) in the nation,
the race riots,
are manifestations of demons stirring up flesh into. (This is) why
people are so passionately and ideologically toxic over this. It is a
world-ruling class spirit. There are spiritual principalities, powers and
rulers of the darkness of this world. This is a world ruler. It is the
prince behind mind control. So when you're in (like propaganda) stuff like
Nazi Germany or in Communist Mao, this spirit works through mind control on
a mass level. It works in order to divide people against people. So
Satan knows that he can create poor against rich, male against
female, young against old, black against white,
The more division
he can create the more power he can consolidate. This spirit is an expert at
serving Lucifer in sowing division to divide people to create new power
LANCE: It's referred in
Job as a creature of the Nile, so we really do know it's talking
about the species. 40% of the crocodile is teeth. So that tells you
that this spirit operates mostly in the mouth. It's mostly a
LANCE: A big mouth
with teeth like a crocodile. When a crocodile fastens on
you it doesn't have the ability to move its jaw...You'll
see...spinning....2 a time will sneak up. Here's the key.
Undetected they suddenly come up, grab a hold of a limb,
some vulnerable point & do what's called the death spiral. They
sink their teeth in, spin,
and use their body weight to tear the limb off. By
dismembering (families/churches/ organizations) they can
destroy. If that isn't working they spin, pull you under into
their realm & cut off the oxygen. 5 times in the Bible
the spirit is referred to as Leviathan in the water. Lord, what is it that you're saying about the operation of this?
(In scripture) King David said, "All day long do my enemies
without a cause twist my words." Meaning David had political
adversaries who would seize on anything he said in order to
distort the meaning of it to divide his administration.
there is governmental/national turmoil/uprising) It's not
even an opinion. It's a conviction. People are certain
they're right. But pride makes you unteachable. How do
you win the argument with that. The spirit is doing a
breakup job on America. It does (uses the same
tactics) on marriages, businesses & churches.
LANCE: It's easy
to detect those (spiritual) crocodiles... The moment you
catch (notice) it, it goes back underground. The moment
when you are flooded with toxic thoughts that produce
rage, anger, hatred & a sense of violence
towards someone, something or idea, you can know it's
not coming from Heaven.
There's always reasons why that happens. One secret
is that out of nowhere you'll be thinking about a
person or a thing &
(negative/toxic/self-sabotaging) feelings will start
to come up. That's the underwater part. The setup is
this. You have a bit of a
strained relationship with somebody. All that it
takes is one incident or wrong word and snap,
it's as though everything that you were thinking
about them is confirmed. That
1st seed that got put in you was a spiritual seed.
You have to be able to catch toxic thinking towards
relationships. Satan is in business of
tearing relationships. I can't necessarily deal with
everything going on around the world, but I can have
authority over what's in my own garden. I'm going to
make sure that whatever (poisonous) feelings I have
towards the people that are around me that I catch
it when the feelings come. If the emotions are
negative, I say, "Is that you, Lord?"
Is that (red flag) discerning? The only time you'll
ever get anything negative that's from Heaven is a
discerning of spiritsm, (like a predator regarding
The missing ingredient is discerning...That's
far different than having toxic thoughts that
are hostile & negative about another person.
When a man gets negative towards his wife it
(can be) the beginning of the divorce. When a
woman has it towards her husband it (can begin)
the loss of respect that (can) lead to a
divorce. When a child has it towards a parent,
it's the moment they (may begin to) stop
listening to correction... The moment you see it,
you can (in Jesus' name and power) break it
(especially when the negative emotion seems to
have a mind all of its own) as though you've no
longer got control over it.
When you're dealing with a (spiritual
evil) world ruler like this level, the
smart strategy is to
the Lord do the deliverance (via
His angels and Hosts). This is one spirit we have to pull out of
the emotional connection (by an act of our
will). We have to deescalate, to go into
a place of humility & the love of God.
It disconnects the (evil) power that hooks
us. That doesn't mean that you're
permanently off the hook. I
have to constantly do what Jesus did.
He said, "Take
heed what you hear and take heed how you
hear." (Sometimes) I have to hear what
they're saying even if it's Leviathan. The
Lord said, "Take heed
how you hear it." Don't let it get a
(response) in you where you start to become
a problem, too. I have to be able to be
in a sense able to see the lie, able to love
the voice that's talking to me & able to turn
it around to find out how
to show the people what's really going on.
I can't afford to get hooked in that spirit. (Increasingly we become more dead to
self & alive to Holy Spirit.)
LANCE: We need this spirit
of discernment, the 1 gift
that the church needs most, We
talk about word of knowledge,
healing, prophecy, faith, but the
discerning of spirits is going to
save your life. It will
protect you from the wrong
partnership, from being sucked into
the wrong fight at the wrong time.
Here's my prayer: I pray for you
right now for discernment in your
marriage, ministry, business & in
all future partnerships. In a
new season you have to be very
careful because when in favor, you
attract the right & the wrong
opportunities. I pray for the
discerning of spirits. May you
discern Leviathan, that twisting
serpent when it's trying to produce
division between you &
somebody God called you to walk with
an agreement. I pray in the name of
Jesus that you'll have a gut level
spiritual discerning that you won't
have to be analyzing with
your head, but you'll have it in
your heart as Jesus had it when his
spirit was disturbed because of the
breach of covenant at the (sedar/Passover)
table. Father, in Jesus' name, I
thank you that the discerning of
spirits is operating to understand
what manner of spirit we're dealing
with (in all our daily dealings +
insight when & how to respond).

"43 'For your fearlessness against them (demons) hold this sure
sign: Whenever there is any apparition (vision/appearing & disappearing of
silent &/or speaking spiritual entities before one's presence), be not
prostrate with fear, but whatsoever it be, 1st boldly ask (In the name of
Jesus Christ,) 'Who art thou? From whence comest thou?' If it should be a vision
of holy ones they will assure you & change your fear
into joy. But if the vision should be from the devil, immediately it becomes
feeble, beholding your firm purpose of mind. For merely to ask, (In the name
of Jesus Christ,) Who art thou ? & whence comest thou? is a proof of coolness (lack of intimidation/resolve/spiritual muscle/willingness to test each spirit,
according to the requirement of scripture). By thus asking, the son of Nun learned who his helper was; nor did the enemy
escape the questioning of Daniel .'"
"51 So he was alone in the inner mountain, spending his time in
prayer & discipline. The brethren who served him asked that they might come
every month & bring him olives, pulse & oil, for by now he was an old man.
then he passed his life, & endured such great wrestlings, 'Not against flesh & blood ,' as it is written, but against
as we learned from those who visited him. For there they heard tumults, many
voices, &, as it were, the clash of arms. At night they saw the mountain become
full of wild beasts, & him also fighting as though against visible beings, &
praying against them. And those who came to him he encouraged, while
kneeling he contended & prayed to the Lord. Surely it was a marvellous thing
that a man, alone in such a desert, feared neither the demons who rose up
against him, nor the fierceness of the (desert) four-footed beasts & creeping
things, for all they were so many. But in truth, as it is written, 'He
trusted in the Lord as Mount Sion ,' with a mind unshaken & undisturbed; so
that the demons rather fled from him, & the wild beasts, as it is written ,
'kept peace with him.'"
"59 But when 2 brethren were coming to him, the water failed on the
way, & 1 died & the other was at the point of death, for he had no strength to
go on, but lay upon the ground expecting to die. But Antony sitting in the
mountain called 2 monks, who chanced to be there, & urged them saying, 'Take a
pitcher of water & run on the road towards Egypt. For of 2 men who were coming,
one is already dead & the other will die unless you hasten. For this has been
revealed to me as I was praying.' The monks therefore went, & found one lying dead, whom they buried, & the
other they restored with water & led him to
the old man. For it was a day's journey [7a]. But if any one asks, why he did not speak before the other died, the question
ought not to be asked. For the punishment of death was not Antony's but God's,
who also judged the 1 & revealed the condition of the other. But the marvel here
was only in the case of Antony: that he sitting in the mountain had his heart
watchful, & had the Lord
to show him things afar off."

editorial 8/11/2014 "I've always heard voices even as a small child. I
connected it to being in-tune with the spirit realm. I didn't become a Christian
until I was a freshman in college. A year later I was delivered from occult spirits... Now I was hearing voices in the air, voices
in my mind & voices of spirits. It was intense & things never did quiet down.
At 1st, I wanted to be alone as much as possible; being in crowds was
painful. I began to crave & treasure silence.
When things didn't change, it left me with the typical questions,
'Am I schizophrenic?
Am I demon-possessed or I
have a really weird gift from God?' I thought I might have something from God, because
started to hear people's thoughts.
Let me explain that. I know that
husbands and wives often know each other's thoughts without thinking too much
about it. It's a sign of intimacy between them. I also read in the Bible that
Jesus would perceive people's thoughts & answer their thoughts appropriately. This gave Jesus an advantage in
difficult crowds... When people are hearing voices or experiencing extreme mood swings,
we are (too) quick to label these persons as schizophrenic or bipolar... If that's you, will you consider that you are
not crazy, but actually gifted? The gift of discerning of spirits can manifest
as 'hearing voices' & having
'extreme mood swings'. I've said many times that I can have a mood swing
depending on what house I'm standing in front of. This is a gift you
learn to walk out. It requires a heavy diet of God's Word, prayer, &
self-discipline to keep corrupted atmospheres or voices & sounds
from ruling you.
God's Word has to rule your feelings, because you won't feel 6/7/2022on most

References to bishops are failure to address or reference the clergy as 'Bishop'

diagnostic. The energumen commonly cannot say the 'title' with the surname.
Severe anger & unexplained anger against a loved one is diagnostic. Blasphemies

of infidelity & enjoining into adult entertainment activities & forms of
prostitution is diagnostic. Hatred for the marriage bond is diagnostic. Refusal
to enter a Christian church, or remain in 1 feigning illness as an excuse to leave.
Accusing clergy as evil & stupid is diagnostic.

domain permission from publisher Noah's Ark, Armidale, Australia
(DANGER. Some prophets can
possibly introduce an evil spirit of error.
instance, Singh seems to believe in a hell containing a purgatory of sorts where
most men can be eventually redeemed, even after dying. Obviously this was possibly true to some degree PRIOR to the death &
resurrection of the Jewish Messiah Christ Jesus, when for 3 days & 2 nights
Christ went to "hell" to mentor the deceased (especially those who loved &
obeyed Torah & Father God) [some claim to preach to (&/or to reclaim heavenly
keys/powers/authority from) the fallen angels & their offspring, the giants] Bottom line is to always test any insight
against the Word & nature of God.
The Dake KJV Bible has much to say about
3:19. Between the cross & resurrection, Jesus 19went (to Tartarus) & preached unto the spirits in prison; which sometime were
disobedient when once the longsuffering of God waited in the
days of Noah,
while the ark was a preparing. Dake footnotes tell us that the
mentioned "spirits are angels," that
human spirits are always qualified as of men, of all flesh, or of the prophets,
& that after death a man/woman/child is NOT preached to, but rather judged.

"There are 2 basic forms of prelestor spiritual deception.
- http://www.fatheralexander.org/booklets/english/charismatic_revival_s_rose_e.htm The 1st & more spectacular form occurs when a person
strives for a high spiritual state or spiritual visions without having been
purified of passions & relying on his own judgment. To such a one the devil grants great 'visions.'
There are many such examples in the Lives of Saints, 1 of the primary
textbooks of Orthodox ascetical teaching. Thus St. Nicetas, Bishop of Novgorod
(Jan. 31), entered on the solitary life unprepared & against the counsel of his
abbot, & soon he heard a voice
praying with him. Then 'the Lord' spoke to him & sent an 'angel' to pray
in his place & to instruct him to read books instead of praying, & to teach
those who came to him. This he did, always seeing the 'angel' near him praying
& the people were astonished at his spiritual wisdom & the 'gifts of the
Holy Spirit' which he seemed to possess, including 'prophecies' which were
always fulfilled. The
deceit was uncovered only when the fathers of
the monastery found out about his aversion for the New Testament
(although the Old Testament, which he had never read, he could quote by heart).
By their prayers he was brought to repentance, his 'miracles' ceased.
Later he attained to genuine sanctity. Again, St. Isaac of the Kiev Caves
(Feb. 14) saw a great light & 'Christ' appeared to him with 'angels'; when
Isaac, without making the sign of the Cross, bowed down before 'Christ,' the
demons gained power over him & after dancing wildly with him, left him all but
dead. He also later attained genuine sanctity. There are many similar cases when
'Christ' & 'angels' appeared to ascetics & granted astonishing powers & 'gifts of the Holy
Spirit,' which often led the deluded ascetic finally to insanity or suicide. But there is another more common, less spectacular form of spiritual deception,
which offers to its victims not great visions but just exalted 'religious
feelings.' This occurs,
as Bishop Ignatius
has written, 'when the heart desires & strives for the enjoyment of holy &
divine feelings while it is still completely unfit for them. Everyone who does
not have a contrite spirit, who recognizes any kind of merit or worth in
himself, who does not hold unwaveringly the teaching of the Orthodox Church but
on some tradition or other has thought out his own arbitrary judgment or has
followed a non-Orthodox teaching is in this state of deception.'
The Roman Catholic Church has whole spiritual manuals written by people in this
state. Such is Thomas a Kempis' Imitation of Christ.
Bishop Ignatius says of it: 'There reigns in this book & breathes from its
pages the unction of the evil spirit, flattering the reader, intoxicating him...
The book conducts the reader directly to communion
with God, without previous purification by repentance... From it carnal
people enter into rapture from a delight & intoxication attained without difficulty,
without self-renunciation, without repentance, without crucifixion of the flesh
with its passions &
desires (Gal. 5:24), with flattery of their fallen state.' The result, as I.M. Kontzevitch, the great transmitter of
patristic teaching, has
written,11 is that 'the ascetic, striving to kindle in his heart love for God
while neglecting repentance, exerts himself to attain a feeling of delight, of
ecstasy, & as a result he attains precisely the opposite: "He enters into
communion with Satan & becomes infected with hatred for the Holy Spirit"
(Bishop Ignatius).' This is the actual state in which followers of the
'charismatic revival,' even without suspecting it, find themselves. This may be
seen most clearly by examining their experiences & views, point by point, against the
teaching of the Orthodox Fathers as set forth by Bishop Ignatius." (NOTE. This is the opinion of 1 author &/or denomination. This is a good warning,
keeping in mind that holy scripture tells us to test the spirits. Let it NOT be a deterrent to
having a vibrant & healthy daily relationship with the Trinity. Even
though spiritual oversight is extremely significant, the Bible is the final
word. Make sure you have read it cover to cover & continue to read it
throughout your entire life. Blessings.)
Ideologies/Individuals that do NOT represent democracies or the Judeo-Christian nature of God
Dwyer, Wayne - Like others nowadays
Dwyer believes in a bit of reincarnation, new age & mystic Eastern
ideologies, while quoting/deferring to the Bible.
Sam Fife - Wikipedia (Sometimes the
prophecy/ministry/teachings are not necessarily wrong, but out of season; the
timing is wrong/premature. Thus an entire generation's destiny can be
lost/forfeited/incomplete. Often the insight/revelaltion is partial,
thus a white lie, half truth or a stepping stone towards maturity.
Sanctification typically begins with being born again and progresses toward
receipt of the baptism in the Holy Spirit, eg. Many denomination/churches
stop with salvation instruction/invitation without informing their congregation
that there is much more spiritual inheritance available in the Trinity + fail to
warn their flock to test all spirits. Speaking in tongues can be either
holy or demonic, depending on spiritual source.)
Flanagan, Sabina -
God - Writings of Hildegard of Bingen -
Publications Very short tastings - English translation from the Latin. God/Jesus/the
Holy Spirit does NOT favor 1 denomination over another, excepting the Jewish
religion/race or perhaps the Messianic Jewish religion. His kingdom is a
new 1 that is spiritual (Christian), rather than of the flesh, or a combination
of Jewish blood & Christian spirit.
Jesus is an Israeli Jew; He is also a Christian. Hildegard had many visions of a speaking white light & was approved by
the pope to continue with her writings. 1 example of errors - Hildegard
contends that God said that "Catholic" infant baptism is OK; that the baptized
infant can later lose its salvation if it does not tow the mark. Yes,
parents can stand in the gap for their children. Yes, parents can dedicate their children to God. 1 major problem is the
word "Catholic" with a capital C. Other churches have infant
baptism/christening. We found only 1% of her writings to be aligned with
the Word of God & the heart of God,
let alone relevant/useful in this generation. When God speaks, His Word
continues to be relevant in every generation. White lights do speak.
However, we always need to test the spirits, according to the requirements of

& provide mercy & kindness for them, while they await freedom from
captivity. Like Ester who gambled death in requesting a hearing from her king & husband.

for (self) protection because when we are young & innocent, we have been hurt,
abused, taken advantage of, but Jesus says, 'In the
kingdom (of God), we must become like a little child again"
without reservation... You can't ever change the (outdoor or family) tree (DNA) without plucking out
the roots. You live in this prison in your own mind.
God wants to give us
His mind...This is not
a one-time session that will fix everything, but a lifestyle. You can bury it or
(the roots) but you will never be really free because of your mindset. The Holy
Spirit promises to guide us into all truth, but we need to follow it. That is
how faith works." [REMEMBER: The soul is knit to the unman spirit at conception. Both are
spiritual in that they return to God at death. They never die. There
is the mind of the human physical brain, but also the mind of the soul.
The soul consists of layers, which when returned or cleansed of junk, such as
wounds, becomes whole. The soul is a trinity consisting of 3 parts: mind,
will & emotions. 2nd sometimes the soul is affected/infected by
personal &/or family curses, which need to be repented of & loosed. Then we are
free to bind to us the blessings & virtues of Christ.]
Renner, Joel @ Overcoming Betrayal |
3/4/2021 (edited) "Betrayal is something that has happened to
people since the beginning of time. It is simply a fact that the devil is a
master at distorting & ruining relationships. He knows how to lure people into
situations where they end up feeling hurt or offended. Then he coaxes them into
nurturing their offense until it mutates into strife that
separates even the best of friends & the closest of family members. Don’t
forget. Satan was kicked out of Heaven because of his unique ability to create
confusion, discord, & strife. Heaven is as perfect as an environment can be. Yet
even in that perfect environment, the devil was still able to affect 1/3 of the
angels with his slanderous allegations against God. Angels who had worshiped
together for eons of time now stood opposed to each other over issues the devil
had conjured up in their minds. That should tell you how clever the devil is
at creating discord & strife. If the devil is persuasive enough to do
this with angels, think how much easier it is for him to deceive people who live
in a far-from-perfect environment & who wrestle daily with their own
imperfections & self-image. Satan watches for that opportune moment when a person is tired,
weary, or exasperated. Then he waits until someone does something that person
doesn’t understand or agree with. Suddenly it is as if the devil shoots a fiery
arrow of rage straight into his or her emotions. Before long, strife,
bitterness, unforgiveness, & division begin to mount. Friends who once stood
side by side and cherished each other now stand facing each other as hostile
rivals. If this sounds familiar, know that this same scenario happened to
Jesus. After working with Judas Iscariot for 3 years, the devil found his
way into Judas’ soul, turning him so sour against Jesus that this disciple
became His betrayer. What opened the door for this deception to occur
inside Judas? In John 13:2, the Bible gives us powerful insight into
the way the devil establishes a foothold in people’s minds. Looking back to John
12:3-7, we can read that Mary had brought a pound of spikenard & poured it on
Jesus’ feet. Judas thought her act of love was a waste of money & took issue
with Jesus about it. But Jesus told Judas to leave Mary alone & allowed her to
continue. John 13:2 then tells us, “Supper being ended, the devil having now
put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray him.”
What was the exact moment that Satan put this thought into Judas’ heart?
Apparently, it was when Judas became offended at Jesus about the spikenard.
Perhaps Judas didn’t agree with Jesus’ decision, or maybe he didn’t like the
fact that Jesus told him to leave Mary alone in front of the other disciples.
maybe it was because Judas was a thief. As the ministry treasurer who stole
regularly from the moneybag he held, he probably didn’t like it when money was
spent elsewhere instead of being placed in the treasury. Whatever the reason,
it was at that moment of disagreement & offense that the devil found a
door (already open) into Judas’ heart...Make a decision to resist
every temptation to get angry & offended. By resisting
these thoughts, you can take a stand against the devil & protect your

Freedom of Choice
Platforms for Abortion present society with idology that
abortion is NOT murder & that removing a fetus from the womb is OK because
it is NOT wanted or convenient NOR a living viable person at the time of
conception, as Father God conceived it to be.
DANGER: Informed consent is rarely that. USA childhood
mandated vaccinations are scheduled prematurely while organs are still
developing, Especially ominous is the involuntary medication (especially
psychiatric) prescribed for defenseless patients. Often the medical side
effects would violate both the hippocratic oath & nuremberg protocol.
